31  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Little Bitty Dime Sized Owl Ring. A little Bit Harry Potterish. on: May 22, 2009 05:56:26 PM
I don't know if I ever posted this charm on here, but he was so tiny he might have gotten over looked.

But for a little guy, he became one wonderful ring!  He makes me think of a Harry Potter Owl.

and an action shot!

And just another ring for funsies!


The mark on the heart is actually a camera light flare thing.
32  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My Steampunkish Try at Jewelry. IMG CHUNKER on: May 20, 2009 09:17:16 PM
I absolutely love the Steampunk genre and thought I would try to incoperate my style into the Steampunk look.  Hence the Octopus.  Anyway, this would be my take on the steampunk bandwagon.

A little story, before.  I took the burn little polymer buiscuits out of the stove, panicked that I had ruined them because I had turned the BROILER ON, setting them carelessly on my stove top. Where I had been boiling noodles for dinner.  About ten minutes later I smell something funny.  I RAN to the oven....uh oh!.  BOOOOOOM.  My casserole dish exploded sending dangerous scalding hot shards of glass all about my kitchen, raining down upon me.  And it melted into my floor.  And it scared the crap out of me.  I came out with just a few scratches, my floor not so good, my crafts okay.  Needless to say...crafting is not a multitasking business!

A Simple Pendant

A Spider

An Octopus

A Bow

A Bolted Heart ( My fave )
All comments and criticisms appreciated.
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Dirty Boy to a Rocking Girl; From Shirt to Dress BABY STYLE!!! IMG FATTY on: May 17, 2009 07:05:59 PM

I love making clothes for my daughter, but I will confess, I have never reconstructed anything for her! UNTIL TODAY!  I bought a shirt that screamed MAKE ME A DRESS at a garage sale this morning and whipped up this little number tonight!  It is an edgy little dress with rough quadruple sewn edges, with an exception to the hem, which I sewn over enough to give it a ruffled appearance. I love that part the best!

My favorite part! The Super Sewn Edge

34  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zombie's and Bubble Trees. (Keeping with the theme!) on: May 14, 2009 06:08:20 PM
If I havn't made the point....


Here is my newest zombie, Baby Lewis, Lover of Brains and Hearts.  He feels as gross as he looks.  The glaze I made had a funky texture, turned out very lumpy and perfect.

And three very adorable Bubble Trees.  Sadly I was wearing the Purple one and smashed it in the car door.  I don't think I baked it as long as I should of because it crumbled more then what should have been expected. 

RIP purple Bubble Tree.  You will be missed and remade.

I think those trees are pretty whimsical.  I love them.  I wish they could grow in my back yard.  I wish they could have my babies.

Comments, criticisms, tell me how to make them better.....you know the drill...
35  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Necklaces, Charms, rings ohmy! NEW CLEANER PICTURES! on: May 09, 2009 09:32:48 PM
So this is a few of my old things that aren't on the shelf, and waiting to be glazed.  I am a little disappointed in a few of them.  But I LOVE LOVE LOVE the owl earrings and the Cherry Blossom Earrings.  But for some reason only one ear on my head is pierced, and the other refuses to stay un-infected.

Any who, these are some things that will become necklaces, charms, and rings in the future. When I get all my findings in.

Here it is.
Firstly, for the Forums Pic
A Pink Tree.  Inspired by Corragated Card Board.

And then A Polka Dot Whale.
He is wonky, and sideways, and looks like a bass, but I love him dearly.

And the others....

1. Cherry Blossom Earrings and Necklace Pendant
2.Octopus and Cassette Ring.  The connosure of music.
3.Pink Tree Thing
4.Voo and Doo Friendship Necklace Pendants! 
5. A Pop Tart.  Only because it is cliche.
6. A Toaster.
7.Country-arse blue birds.  I made them for my grandmothers friend.
8. Red Breasted Robin Hair Bow Charm for my DD.
9. Rainbow Boom Box
10.Hoots Earrings.  They make me think of the HP Barn Owls.
11. Pink Bow Ring.
12.Lime Green Cassette, may possible become a hair bow.
13. Country Arse Blue Birds for my Grandmas friend.

These are now in post-glossed production and awating chains and ring settings in the mail.


Comments, critique always welcome.
36  UNITED STATES / Indiana / Hendricks County Crafters on: May 06, 2009 07:06:29 AM
Hey there!

So I have lived in Plainfield for two years, but I can't say I know much about the place.  Seasonal Craft fairs and what not.  I am just looking for fellow Hendricks County Crafters.  See whats in my neighborhood.
37  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / OCTOPUS NECKLACE! not my idea at all. NOW WITH SQUID SISTER! on: May 04, 2009 08:28:59 PM
I got this idea from here, from another crafter and loved it so much I needed to make it.   It's gorked and just for me.  I have no intentions of ever making and selling necklaces of this sort, though I have made a lot of Octopi Wear.  Never of this size and magnitude though.  If some one could link to the crafty crafster who made the original work of art, I would surely appreciate it.

EDIT!!! I made a new tentical creature.  i figure I would just add to this post since it is similar, and I don't want to be a super-poster. 

and a neck shot. I am a Girraffe.

38  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Suggestions on Polymer Glosses on: May 04, 2009 04:08:20 PM
I need some suggestions on good clear polymer glosses.  I bought some Studio by Sculpey Glossy Glaze, but it seemed foggy.  I want something really shiny and really clear.

Any ideas?
39  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Surgical Mask. NO SWINE FLU! NO ZOMBIE INVASION! TUTE INCLUDED! on: May 04, 2009 09:35:31 AM
Firstly, excuse my morning mulletish hair, and yesterdays make up.

So my husband, out of hilarity, wore a surgical mask to work one day.  Then he complained that it was uncomfortable and inconvenient because he couldn't breath.  I guess thats the price you pay to prevent Swine Flu and Zombie Invasions.

Anyway, I made him his very own black Surgical Mask.  It could also be used as a Ninja mask.  Which I am sure is more sensible in the long run. Daily Ninja runs and what not.  I made one with an Umbrella Corp logo, I'll get pics up later.

Tute Included.

This is the finished mask.

This is the mask from various angles


I used standard black quilting broadcloth, and the elastic was 1/8 inch flat black elastic.

Before you cut, measure from the bridge of your nose to an inch past your chin.  THat will be the length of your mask.  Then measure from the inside of each ear.  That will be the width.  These will be the measurements for your half circle's.  Measure your nose, and use that measurement to mark where your nose ends on the mask. Mark the mask.

From there, follow the tute below!

40  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zombie Charms RARWR!!! on: April 27, 2009 04:06:20 PM
So I love zombies, and I love charms. I got the idea from a brain cup cake charm I saw on here but I can't remember who posted it.  So if some one could remember it, I would love to give credit!

Put them together, and POOF!

Forgive the wonky charm loops, I am still learning that part.
